UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is shaky and unable to support the appropriate functioning of the servers situated inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers all of the time, so if the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can provide you with the needed energy to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.

We offer you cloud web hosting in three of the major data centers worldwide. They are situated in the U.S., in the UK and in Australia.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we offer are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electric power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our innovative hosting platform and the network which manages all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is connected to each hosting server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to deliver electric power for the entire center for a long time with no need to restrict the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even in the event that there is an outage, all the sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible without any disturbances and will work at top speed.
